The KOHLER K-10284-CP Forte Multifunction Showerhead is a classy shower head that will offer you a hydro massage shower. This is because this high-quality shower head features a user-friendly spray head pivot to give you an amazing targeted hydro massage shower you deserve.

This older version of the Forte Multifunction has one of the most powerful rainshower sprays we tested, as well as thumping massage and gentle spray settings.

It features 3 unique spray settings, i.e., wide spray, massage spray and a gentle aerated spray. This means that though it is a single head, you can enjoy three types of showers! Last but not least, the ability to deliver up to 25 gallons per minute supplied the perfect amount of water to keep the bathing process smooth.

The primary advantage we noticed with this showerhead was its style. It’s a very striking showerhead and it creates a classic design compliment for your bathroom’s interior design. It’s also available in a wide array of finishes, allowing you to fully customize the look of this Forte showerhead.

What experts didn't like
The primary disadvantage we can see with this multifunction showerhead is its overall size. At six inches in width, it just isn’t going to work for every shower. For homes with weaker water pressures below 2.5 GPM, this showerhead may not provide a good PSI for you to enjoy either because there is no pressure accelerator within this unit. The interior water jets are also a bit difficult to clean if you’ve got hard water.

From The Manufacturer

The diversity and incredible breadth of the Forté bath faucet collection allows you to create a truly customized bath suite with a coordinating design. Forté faucets are designed with consumer usability and style preferences in mind. Their sleek lines and smooth, rounded edges fit the design of most bathrooms, while making the faucets easy to clean and shine. The Forté Multifunction Showerhead offers four unique spray settings to fit your mood. The wide rim makes it easy to rotate and adjust the showerhead, which stays firmly in place after moving. The wide-coverage spray is similar to the spray of a traditional showerhead, providing good overall coverage. The soothing aerated spray softens the water pressure just slightly, creating a relaxing experience. The revitalizing massage spray increases the pressure and gives a textured feel to your shower.
